It's that time again!

RulesCollapse )


1. Dude, the Salvation Army Santas needs your pocket change – and you don’t. Go forth and donate all those pesky pennies! This is the season of giving, after all.
2. And with those pesky ones in your purse/wallet, head down to your local dollar store, purchase a toy, and drop it off at a local Toy Drive. Christmas is for kids, and a lot of them have parents who don’t make enough money for presents. 'Tis better to give than to receive, and you could make some kid's day.

And, now that my altruistic side has been sated *wink*:

3. The proverbial paid account time. I like my icons. :) *points up* This one is totally borrowable - with credit.
4. The proverbial Amazon wishlist. Gently used is perfectly fine; if you have an old copy of anything on my list, just send it my way! :)
5. Cat jewelry. I'd prefer earrings, but bracelets, necklaces, anklets, they're all good. And if they're holiday themed - even if that holiday is Halloween or Easter! - all the better. I can wear pierced earrings and ones with nickel in them, so no need to speciality shop. Again, gently used is great with me. I adore my stray kitties - one is right now *trying* to help me write this list! *grin*
6. I knit a lot, and while I have plenty of yarn, three of my current projects are making hats for children at the local children's hospital, blankets for women with breast cancer, so they can stay warm during chemo treatments, and prayer shawls for shut-ins. I can always use more yarn, even if it's only a little bit. Or even the last few cents on a craft store (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Jo-Anns, Wal-Mart) gift card. Needles and patterns are great too.
7. I'm a member of PaperBackSwap.com, which is a great site. It's an online book-swapping site where you send other people your old books for free, which in turn earns you a credit towards requesting your own book for free. The books I have to send out are here, and if you are in the market for any, please request. I'd love to get these books out of my home and into someone else's - and earn more credits! If you're not a member of PaperBackSwap and would like to be, please consider naming me as your referral - which will also earn me a credit! My user name is amarinrose, and my email is amarin_rose@sbcglobal.net
9. An NCIS/CSI: Las Vegas crossover fic that includes as many of the following as possible: Greg, Abby and Tim geeking out together (in any combination), use of sign language as a significant plot point (like used as silent communication during an op, when they can see each other but can't talk), Warrick and Tony vying to be the most stylish agent on the case, and definitely something about bugs. I am partial to Gibbs/Tony, but I keep wanting to see Abby, Tony and Greg end up in bed together. Mmm...

And this one gives back!

10. If you shop on eBay or any of dozens other online stories like Shop.com, Walmart.com, Sephora, or Barnes and Noble, you could make money back on each purchase! Just join BigCrumbs.com, make your purchases on those sites by clicking on their link at BigCrumbs, and BigCrums will pay you back a percentage of your purchase price. I've been a member for a a year and have already make back over one hundred and thirty dollars! And if you join using my link - - I will get a comission for each rebate you get! Win/win, yes/yes?

In return, I can send Christmas cards to anyone with an address. I've screened comments, and anyone who wants a holiday card, just leave your snail mail and I'll get it out as soon as I can!

Does what it says on the tin. :P

DC Comics

1. Toon!Tim-centric vid to TATU's 'Clowns (All Around Me)'. Yeah, I'm going there: Revenge of the Joker! The song would work especially well if you could get clips (or comic panels) that seem to show a bit of right after Tim was 'rescued' and how the Joker followed him until the events of the movie.

2. Comics!Tim-centric vid to Dashboard Confessional's 'Perfect'. Tim, right after his father found out he was Robin, and then moving on to when he was murdered. It's (pardon the pun) a 'perfect' fit!

Star Trek: 2009

1. One of those trailer smushes where you take the sound/music of one movie's trailer and put it over the other movie's (generally with a few clips exchanged here and there to make it work). My thoughts? Star Trek's film with Mortal Kombat's sound. 'A handful of people on a leaky boat are gonna save the world?' 'Exactly.' Wouldn't Spock Prime make a fantastic Rayden?

Unfortunately I can't find an online version of the specific trailer I'm thinking of; I have uploaded the 'song' here.

2. Jim-centric vid to 'I'm Still Here' by the Goo Goo Dolls from Treasure Planet. It's subtitled 'Jim's Song', even! And it's a song about a boy (named Jim!) trying to live up to his father.


Okay, I know there are two vids to Supasister's 'Coffee', but, uh, I don't think either of them are very good. *cough* They mostly just look like random clips, which makes sense, since they are several years old, which means the vid-makers were probably only using the first season and maybe part of the second. But the song just screams Ianto (and his fiesty relationship with Jack), so I don't think there can be too many different versions of this!

I'm willing to supply the music for any and all of these, if any vid-makers reading this are feeling like giving me a prezzie!

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The Weirdo

Crackfic, Mpreg, and all the other oddities.

You are pretty weird. It's hard to put you in a box. On one hand, you might lean towards the bizarre subgenres; recklessly slash people with inanimate objects, create alternate universes where Harry Potter is a seven-year-old girl named Annie and don't take fanfiction very serious. On the other hand, you might be a misunderstood genius that could write Tolkien, Roddenberry and Rice into the ground, and your ideas are simply totally ahead of their time.

However, the chances you're the latter are rather small.

Take The Fan Fiction Personality Test at OkCupid

And yet, I don't think I've actually paired anyone with an inanimate object... Not that I can remember everything I wrote off the top of my head. :P

What was your favorite toy when you were a child? Do you still have it? What did it mean to you?

First question listed was submitted by xxnormality. (Follow-up questions, if any, may have been added by LiveJournal.)

A stuffed bunny I got for Easter when I was...six? Seven? I named her Easterly and she went everywhere with me. Whenever she got too dirty, she would go in the wash, which necessitated my Dad having to repaint her nose several thousand times when the original color wore off. And yes, I stil have her. She's on the same shelf as my other favorite toy, a bat puppet named Batterina that I got when I was eight or nine. Batterina is in much better shape, but no less loved.

If you were to make a time capsule today to be opened in 50 years, what would you put in it?

View 515 Answers

Well, I presume we're not answering as if it were a personal time capsule, so... A copy of a Washington DC paper showing President Obama won the election, a copy of a New York paper on September 12, 2001, a copy of a Lousiana paper on the Katrina disaster, a Starbucks coffee cup, a DVD of the new Star Trek movie, obituaries for both Ghandi and Mother Teresa as well as complete biographies for both, a collection of both Cher and Michael Jackson's greatest hits, a cheap reusable tote bag, copies of the comic book trades where Superman and Captain America died, an article about the introduction of the Euro, the largest thumb drive from both 1999 and 2009, and a Forever stamp with a list of when stamp prices changed since 1990.

This is hopelessly biased towards Americans, but I freely admit to not paying much attention to the rest of the world.
